People experience a fake happiness when they admire material wealth. And lastly, I am happy because I truly love myself even though I may not be the most perfect human being. I am happy because of how much I care and love those who are around me. Bringing joy to someone’s life undoubtedly makes me a much happier human being. To have a successful life one must be
She goes on to elaborate how she always waits for the longest day of the year, but ends up missing it-- a seemingly pointless topic that alludes to the reality of the lives Daisy and Tom lead, one that Nick mirrors in the novel. Not having to work for anything, their life is composed of worthless decisions and accomplishments that lead to nothing. Having their future laid out for them, their lives are filled with hollow attempts to pass the time. However, in their endeavor to occupy themselves, they become ignorant to the consequences of their actions. They consume themselves with a temporary substitute for a purposeless life, blind to the damage they cause, unwilling to change, waiting for a climax that never arrives.
Discontentment, to me, is the feeling of being alone, that you don’t have anyone to talk to or laugh with. It can also be the feeling of grief or sadness, maybe you lost someone and you don’t know how to get over it because it’s too powerful and it hurts too much. Discontentment could also be yourself hurting, maybe someone broke your heart or you’re fighting with someone important. You can
The speaker feels an infuriating sense because we are too caught up with materialism in the world. It has been a problem of the past and will continue to be a problem in the future as long as we keep giving ourselves to earthly acts. To reveal more aggravation, the speaker states “Little we see in Nature that is ours” (ln. 3). The speaker is emphasizing his disappointment by saying that we are too caught up with our daily habits that we forget to notice nature’s beauty.
We need to accept ourselves with respect, honour and love so as to reach a stage of relating to our little world with utmost compassion. It may seem hard and strange to have kindness and compassion for ourselves, but it is not undesired or impractical. Because: we can nourish others, only when we nourish ourselves; we can truly love others, only when we love ourselves; and we can be good to others, only when we don’t attack or condemn
In conclusion, the usage of personification and hyperboles in “True love,” exemplify how love comes in unique experiences, and differs from person to person. Whether it is a mother’s love for a child, a mutual love between two beings, or an individual’s love for another being from afar, the feeling that love can inspire
I have so many painful memories that I would like to forget about and that I prefer not remembering. I agree with this idea that your coping mechanism or survival instinct might hide these memories away from you to protect you. Although I personally don’t remember having any repressed memory but there are many things that I feel are too painful for me, without ever realizing why they affect me so much when they should not. Going to the article again and to our book, I do agree with points expressing that how repressed memories can also be false memories that are just making monsters by the active imagination. There are some cases of repressed memories that lead to false accusations and might destroy someone’s reputation and ruin their
My emotions played games on my heart and I was unaware of anything that was happening around me. I just felt heartbroken at first because it was so sudden and I was in denial. “I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.” Suffering in isolation causes you to overthink every single step you did with the person. No matter if you walked down the right road or the wrong road. I thought about every possibility that could have been a mistake, something so little that made us grow separately from each other.
Sometimes, happiness is difficult for many to achieve just because of we can not enjoy the moment that we have. Every time we think about some mistakes that we did in past or think about our future. There are some factors which affect it. A) We do not live the right moment: Sometime we do not notice miracles happens around us. We miss that opportunity to enjoy that blessings.
I feel vulnerable because someone could potentially say something that may hurt my feelings. I’ve been criticized my entire life, so if someone says something that is negative it lowers my self-esteem in a sense. I try extremely hard to do things that will make a difference in this world and it feels like I won’t ever improve or become better at anything. When someone constantly tells me that I’m not exceling in a certain area, whether it’s at home, college, or work I usually get depressed and feel like I’m a failure. I am putting my self-esteem at risk each time I give someone the opportunity to provide constructive criticism.
As much as he tries to downplay the fact that he does not care about Jane by using diction like ‘hell’ and ‘bastard’, but he truly cares. The point is that one should constantly be proud of who he/she is and not try to hide it. One should be proud of being a good friend, be proud of who he/she is, be proud of oneself every time he/she makes a good decision, be proud of all the small things one has accomplished, be proud of one’s unique strengths, and do not leave it to another person to make one feel like ‘he/his is enough’; leave it to oneself. Also, there are advantages to this. By being proud of who one is, one’s confidence skyrockets, one becomes honest and likeable.
You might never guess that there is something wrong with me, but there is. I have anxiety, and it is a horrible struggle every day. All that i want to do at this point in my life is to let others like me know that they are not; and never will be, alone. Before I knew the struggles that I would face every day, I thought that life was supposed to be nonstop recklessness and fun. I now know with all my heart that life isn 't that way, that i have to be careful with what
Stevens can unite into what we call a we. This we is an extension of our own well-being and is the mark of love. Bad things that happen to your loved one happen to you; however, this is true when good things happen as well. Someone who loves you and helps you with your problems does so not out of selfishness, but doing so is in part to maintain their own well-being. Thus, according to Norzick, a benefit from love is that it places a floor under your well-being.
